Did this through sixth grade. Mowed lawns in the warm months, and sold firewood in the cold. So I started working early, and I retired early from a latter life of a general contractor . I say all this to try and tattoo a mindset of just who I am, and kinda where I’ve been. Mainly... what makes me the way I am. (lots of “i”’s I know. Been dealing with that my whole life. Haha
The majority of the funds derived from all the things I did, for money or employment, pretty much my entire life, were immediately put into real money items. Mainly coins, and bars, yet has evolved into really “old anything”. Vintage antiques of all area’s are so cool. This is who I’ve been just about my entire life. Always acquiring. Rarely if ever, lightening. Now that’s going to change to allow focus on just a couple areas, as I start weeding out a lifetime of accumulating. Quite the task before me.
Many items here in furniture and misc are family items. Actually remember many of them, since I was old enough to start remembering. Self employed my entire life has been a hoot.
From age eight to present, I was into surfing. And traveling to do the same.
Three grown children now. Three grandchildren. As of 12/2020. Coin collecting is/was my passion. Too bad it spends 99.9% of the time in the bank. I do get visitation whenever I want, and have photos which are the next best thing to being there. Re opening my former eBay business/hobby very soon. Finishing photos now 12/2020 and will soon start selling coins & jewelry & collectibles again. Will be under the user name Investor1908 in the first half of 2021. Come by and pay me a visit.
I love anything old and cool. The older the better. And a bargain is always advantageous.
My oldest son summed it up well when he said many years ago, "dad, our house looks like the Cracker Barrel".
Today, some ten years later, nothing much has changed I'm an eclectic collector "full bore" and love & respect those that are the same. Please take the time to enjoy looking at a few things that have "made themselves at home" with our family. My bad for not having newly posted items. They will filter in through 2021 and beyond.
Happy collecting to all!”
Thanks for taking a peek.
